    We would recommend black and blue. The upper is crust calf that has been hand-antiqued to achieve a warm grey hue, black products will blend well with the grey color. A few layers of blue will help deepen the black color for a richer antiquing.

    Black will add patina but you should be careful with the suede. I guess it depends on what color undertones you would like and then use such color to eventually darken.

    Edit: just saw the errors of auto-fill... embarassaing... :embar:

    I would leave them alone also. But, if you must add polish, just focus on a burnished toe and heel. Less is more IMO. Good luck.

    For reference, here are a pair of Shannons with the shaft polished with navy paste and the upper with black; it darkened it but the colorway has not significantly changed. [​IMG] Original color when they first arrived: [​IMG]

    Any plans for a restock of that brown CXL Carmina jodhpur boots from spring in the future? I see a calf jodhpur coming up for fall any future plans for the CXL?

    Both of those boots are outstanding. And the burnishing on the lighter colored ones look great. Fantastic looking boots.

    I'm afraid that we do not have any current plans of restocking the CXL Carmina Jodhpur, as we will add two new jodhpurs to our line-up this fall.
